Two months into the COVID-19 pandemic, we see curves flattening and cities lifting shelter restrictions. By no means is this pandemic over; and yet, policymakers, researchers, medical practitioners, and industry are starting to grapple with how we operate in a post-COVID world. What is the path forward, economically, medically, and culturally?
The Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence’s second virtual conference on COVID will address these questions. Scholars from across disciplines will discuss their research using AI, data science and/or informatics to help us understand how we emerge from this crisis. Sessions will examine, among other topics: Preparing for the 2020 election, protecting privacy during contact tracing, and assessing COVID infections.
